1. Phoenix Lightning Storm | August 24th, 2015


    from Bryan Snider Photography Added 728 2 0

    Some outflows kicked up some decent storms that produced quite the light show just before midnight. These storms (in the south metro of Phoenix) produced relatively frequent lightning and a little bit of rain. This video captures some of the best strikes of the very early morning hours.

    • MIOPS Trigger - Product Review


      from PixelHobo.Photography Added

      The MIOPS Trigger is a small device that can be attached by way of it’s hotshoe adapter directly to your camera or by screwing into a 1/4 20 threaded tripod mount away from the camera if needed. Developed by the Nero Company it offers the creative photographer with a veritable arsenal of potential trigger options for their imaging needs. Whether you’re looking to shoot Lightning, Water Droplets, Bursting Water Balloons with Bullets or Darts or indeed catching imagery of super elusive Wildlife then this little device is something that should appeal to you. It comes programmed with a number of scenarios: Lightning Sound Timelapse Laser HDR DIY Scenario Each with their respective and customisable parameters allows the user to fine tune the MIOPS Trigger to suit their very exact needs. As a Wildlife Photographer I am eager to be able to set this unit up in a Laser triggered camera trap scenario in order to photograph an event or species that would otherwise, due to my presence not show itself.

Copyright © 2015 Brasspineapple Productions L.L.C. Jason Matthew Mahan Lightning is a sudden electrostatic discharge during an electrical storm between electrically charged regions of a cloud (called intra-cloud lightning or IC), between that cloud and another cloud (CC lightning), or between a cloud and the ground (CG lightning). The charged regions in the atmosphere temporarily equalize themselves through this discharge referred to as a strike if it hits an object on the ground. Although lightning is always accompanied by the sound of thunder, distant lightning may be seen but be too far away for the thunder to be heard. The best studied and understood form of lightning is cloud to ground (CG). Although more common, intracloud (IC) and cloud to cloud (CC) flashes are very difficult to study given there are no "physical" points to monitor inside the clouds. Also, given the very low probability lightning will strike the same point repeatedly and consistently, scientific inquiry is difficult at best even in the areas of high CG frequency. As such, knowing flash propagation is similar amongst all forms of lightning, the best means to describe the process is through an examination of the most studied form, cloud to ground. About 70% of lightning occurs over land in the tropics where atmospheric convection is the greatest. This occurs from both the mixture of warmer and colder air masses, as well as differences in moisture concentrations, and it generally happens at the boundaries between them. The flow of warm ocean currents past drier land masses, such as the Gulf Stream, partially explains the elevated frequency of lightning in the Southeast United States. Because the influence of small or absent land masses in the vast stretches of the world's oceans limits the differences between these variants in the atmosphere, lightning is notably less frequent there than over larger landforms. In general, cloud-to-ground (CG) lightning flashes account for only 25% of all total lightning flashes worldwide. Since the base of a thunderstorm is usually negatively charged, this is where most CG lightning originates. This region is typically at the elevation where freezing occurs within the cloud. Freezing, combined with collisions between ice and water, appears to be a critical part of the initial charge development and separation process. During wind-driven collisions, ice crystals tend to develop a positive charge, while a heavier, slushy mixture of ice and water (called graupel) develops a negative charge. Updrafts within a storm cloud separate the lighter ice crystals from the heavier graupel, causing the top region of the cloud to accumulate a positive space charge while the lower level accumulates a negative space charge. Because the concentrated charge within the cloud must exceed the insulating properties of air, and this increases proportionally to the distance between the cloud and the ground, the proportion of CG strikes (versus cloud-to-cloud (CC) or in-cloud (IC) discharges) becomes greater when the cloud is closer to the ground.
